Thought I'd take another stab at this brick wall!

I'm looking for parents/siblings of George W. DEWALT who came to Harrison Co (then Jefferson Co) in the early 1800s, most probably from either PA or VA. His first two children were b in VA; the Strausbaugh family history (several Strausbaughs married DEWALTs)suggest they "may have been" from Adams Co, PA.

George was married to Elizabeth EMERY. Interestingly, the 1820 census shows a David DEWALT living between an Isaac HEMRY and a George HEMRY in Rock Twp, Harrison Co. I've read that HEMRY=EMERY in some situations. Is there a connection?

Any help or leads greatly appreciated.
